    The red matches the anguish on the face of the guy on the phone.

  2. I have been investigating red myself recently, and asking that same question, I think it is fascinating how colours change their significance and symbolism across different cultures. For me personally, I tend to use red in paintings wnen I am ‘ fired up’ , either with great energy and enthusiasm, or occassionally with anger. It also symbolises blood and sacrifice and death to my mind. However, contradictarily, I find that red is a brilliant acce t colour, as you have demonstrated so well in your photo, and as has been used in films spectacularly effectively eg in Schindlers List and Dont Look Now 🙂

    Lollipops….red to me means lollipops. My kids love the red ones–that is their favorite. So, red makes me happy to think of their happy, sticky, red faces. 🙂
